On Writing Fear

Release Date: November 13, 2020

An anthology of works studying the way in which writers evoke fear and how they may affect us. This investigation spans from the Gothic 1800’s, leading up through today’s modern Presidential speech by President Bush, declaring war on “Terror”, a term that left the American public on edge for over a decade.

Gothic America: Collection of Gothic works prior to the 1900’s in America

Gothic America is a collection of a “Lucky 7” short vintage horror stories that were originally published prior to the 1900’s. This vintage throw back is set to be a horrific gathering for your very own Halloween gathering. These stories are quick, witty, and easily shareable with children in the room.  Perhaps not in the 1800’s, but today’s children are ready for these horrors as they are more subtle in nature. They are not gore-heavy, or littered with loud and grotesque imagery.  With the same friendly spirit that Washington Irving wrote The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, this collection is also intended to be shared in a group setting of all ages.  These stories are meant to be read aloud and in the dark.

Ghost Children: Two Gothic Haunts by Mary E. Wilkins

The ghosts in “The Lost Ghost” and “The Wind in the Rose-Bush” are not restricted ghosts, and this is how these ghosts differ from the other ghosts of writers of Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freeman time such as Henry James, Sarah Jewett or Ambrose Bierce. These apparitions may seem cute, but think twice as these ghost children will leave you with goose bumps. This double feature of Mary E. Wilkins short fiction is creepy enough to leave you sleeping with the lights on.
